DOUBLE SPEAK IS DOUBLE SPEAK. Recognize it as a pathetic government brainwashing attempt. If you can see how bad things are getting around you, do NOT let the government lies persuade you that things are getting better. Company Earnings are dramatically falling to one third of former values. Retail Sales are falling and falling! Durable Goods orders have fallen and they can't get up. Houses are still falling in value. Banks are failing left and right. Commercial property is collapsing in value and their mortgages are in arrears or up for renewal. Foreclosures abound and are increasing on commercial property. It is all going to hell on a sleigh ride, yet Big Bro Obama says things are improving. "ECONOMIC LIES! You can not believe the actual numbers!" Big Bro tells you on television. "Trust Him!" he says because his numbers are seasonally adjusted for public consumption. Big Bro will lead you to the Promised Land..... Do not start to love Big Brother!
